Content centric networks

The advent of smartphones and the associated change in usage patterns indicates that carrier voice revenues are constantly going down and are expected to almost vanish in the near future. Data revenues are picking up but not at a rate which will make up for the shortfall in voice revenues. Also, the increase in data revenue is accompanied by a corresponding increase in traffic. This leads to higher costs in deploying and operating networks as well as a significant growth in network complexity. In this project we will be working on

  • Mechanisms to optimize network usage by increasing utilization
  • Optimizations for content delivery
  • Simplified network architectures
  • Mechanisms for reducing operating costs (including transport & peering)
